In 2021 the Quatuor Agate were prize-winners at the Young Classical Artists Trust International Auditions.
Currently based in Paris, it is first their love for Berlin – its dynamic culture, rich and eclectic musical life – that brings these four passionate members of the Quatuor Agate together.
These young musicians, native of the South of France (Marseille, Toulouse and Bordeaux), find in Berlin the ideal environment for their natural curiosity. They share an enthusiasm for bold, alternative, even underground projects and in 2016, decided to set up the Quatuor Agate to explore together their musical passions.
Their encounter with the string quartet repertoire is a decisive turning point in the life of the four musicians. They have extensive and varied musical experience (from solos to chamber music, including with the prestigious Berlin orchestras), and find in this new repertoire an infinite source of expression and inspiration.
